A loan of $500 helped to buy a CNG Rickshaw for her son.


Dilshad's story

Dilshad is living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is an old client of BRAC Pakistan and this is her sixth loan.

Dilshad is taking the loan for her son. In fact, her son drives an auto rickshaw. He has been driving the auto rickshaw for many years, using petrol which is very costly.

Due to an increase in the cost of petrol, he sold his old rickshaw and wants to buy a new CNG (compressed natural gas) rickshaw. With the contribution of savings and the selling price of the old rickshaw, he is still short of the amount needed to buy a new CNG rickshaw.

Therefore, Dilshad contacted Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan. Through the loan, her son will buy a CNG rickshaw, so he can minimize the fuel expense and increase his income.

Dilshad seems very happy after taking this loan. She gives thanks to Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
